How were Luke and the Apostles?

[edit] Albert Grossman and Bill Graham’s interest
On January 6, 1967, Luke & The Apostles played at the newly opened, Boris’ Red Gas Room, upstairs from Boris’.

Although the group’s single had still not been released, the opportunity to return to New York in mid-April to perform at the Café Au Go Go for a week bode well for the future. While Elektra had decided not to release the single, the label still expressed an interest in recording the band. During its time at the Café Au Go Go, Elektra booked the group into its New York studios for a day to record an album’s worth of material, including the tracks, “I Don’t Feel Like Trying” and “So Long Girl”.

In its first stand at the Café Au Go Go, Luke & The Apostles backed folkie Dave Van Ronk but were so well received that the club owner asked the band to return for on a second week in late May, opening for The Grateful Dead.

During one of the Café Au Go Go shows, Bob Dylan and Paul Butterfield Blues Band’s manager Albert Grossman and rock promoter Bill Graham approached the band offering a management contract. Bill Graham also promised the band a slot at the Fillmore West in California that summer.

No. I was a Manhattanite. I lived four miles up from the Fillmore east. I just hopped on the Lexington Ave local and got off at either Astor place (for the Fillmore East or Bleecker st. for everything else. The Cafe Au GoGo was on Bleecker. the Village proper was similar to the Haight, only pricier.

Managed to find my way to the Village in '72, don't really remember much about it tho, other than it was a bad idea to walk from my friends apartment on West 83rd to get there.
